Ingredients

1 pound dried green split peas, rinsed

2 medium carrots, peeled and medium dice

2 medium celery stalks, medium dice

1/2 medium yellow onion, medium dice

2 medium garlic cloves, minced

2 fresh Italian parsley sprigs

1 bay leaf

1 meaty smoked ham bone or 2 ham hocks (about 1 pound)

4 cups low-sodium chicken broth (1 quart)

2 cups water

Kosher salt

Freshly ground black pepper

Directions

1Arrange the split peas in the slow cooker in an even layer. Arrange the carrots, celery, onion, garlic, parsley, and bay leaf over the peas in one even layer. Place the ham bone or hocks on top of the vegetables. (At this point you can remove the insert from the slow cooker, cover, and refrigerate up to 12 hours until ready to continue.)

2Pour the chicken broth and water into the slow cooker and season with salt and pepper. Cover and cook until the peas are very soft and the meat is falling off the bone, on high for 5 to 6 hours or low for 8 to 10 hours.

3Remove the ham bone or hocks to a cutting board. When cool enough to handle, remove the meat from the bones, place the meat back in the soup (discard the skin and bones), and stir to combine. Taste and season with more salt and pepper as needed.
